Labour leader Andrew Little is refusing to accept the results of an opinion poll which show his party has slumped to 26 per cent support.

The One News Colmar-Brunton poll released on Monday shows Labour down three points since June to a level that's only just above its 2014 election result of 25 per cent.

"I don't accept this poll, I think it's bogus," Mr Little said.

Other recent polls have shown Labour around the 30 per cent mark.

The poll shows National steady on 48 per cent, the same as it's 2014 election result.

The Greens are up one point to 13 per cent and NZ First has gained two points to 11 per cent.

The results mean that if an election was held now, National would be able to form a government with its current partner parties.

Labour, the Greens and NZ First would not have enough seats to defeat the government.

In the preferred prime minister stakes, John Key remains well ahead with 38 per cent, down one point.

Winston Peters is up one point to 11 per cent and Mr Little up three to 10 per cent.
